A Time for Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is a time of reflecting on what we are thankful for and showing gratitude to those we love. Here at Central Coast Living, we are thankful for all of you that follow our blog and love the Monterey Bay area as much as we do! Our team at the Portola Hotel & Spa is also thankful for all that walk through our doors and wanted to share some personal expressions of gratitude.

We invite you to comment and share what you are thankful for this season!

Happy Thanksgiving!
